7:04am
did not use drugs. the range owner called him several times to invite him to come in for an interview. he said the message on his machine was bizarre, freakish. the police chief revealing to us that the suspect's parents are remaining silent. >> they're not talking to us right now. maybe that will change. >> reporter: how tough will it be for this community so see the suspect in court? >> he's harmed so many people. not only the victims but they're extended families. i think it will be very hard. >> reporter: the police chef telling me they're getting significant help from the fbi behavioral analysts, trying to look into his past. the suspect faces multiple counts of attempted murder and first degree murder. those counts will not be applied

7:06am
thousands, we saw conspicuous security, lots of batman shirts, and many parents with children. part of the message here is there was one really bad guy does not overrule a lot of very good people. >> yeah, i mean, terrible things happen all the time. as long as we stand together, love cannot be beaten by hate. >> reporter: the president spent time with victims in the hospital. >> i come to them not so much as president as i do as a father and as a husband. >> reporter: over the weekend, wlerned the names and the stories of the 12 dead. they worked at red robin, subway, and target. they were current and former members of the armed services, some of whom survived war zones only to die at the movies. the oldest, 51, was gordon cow squn den, an outdoorsman and small businessman. the youngest, 6, was veronica
7:07am
moser sullivan. >> she was always happy. >> reporter: her mother, ashley, was shot, too. she's in critical condition. and she is pregnant. we're told that ashley is aware of and distraught over the loss of her 6-year-old daughter. even though she took two shots to the abdomen, there are conflicting reports about whether the baby in her belly survived. these are extremely anxious hours for her family. >> they certainly are. let's get more on once police were able to get inside james holmes' apartment. pierre thomas has been on this from the start. >> reporter: good morning, george. police sources are describing james holmes as a mad scientist. he transformed his home into a bomb factory. a death trap. just inside the 800-square foot
7:08am
apartment was a wire. running about waist high. placed there so set off a bomb. a deadly surprise for whoever crossed it. >> this apartment was designed to kill whoever entered it. >> reporter: the improvised explosive device was composed of two liquids if combined would have ignited. the living room floor was covered with 30 bombs, each connected to a control panel in the kitchen. the plan, to set off a chain reaction of explosions, unleashing fire and carnage. potentially enough to blow up his apartment. >> it was an extremely dangerous environment. >> reporter: there were scores of bullets and axel rants, including ten gallons of gasoline. look at the fireball when police disposed of it. before police set foot in the apartment, the bombs had to be
7:09am
disarmed. [ explosion ] that is police setting off a small explosion to make it safe to enter. authorities recovered a computer from inside. and more evidence of his bat man obsession. a variety of batman paraphernalia. a poster and a mask from the comic book series. local police, the fbi, and atf hope the computer will give them the break they've been looking for. >> we're joined by dan abrams and marissa rendazzo, a research scientist with the fbi. holmes has lawyered up. not cooperating. what more can we expect from the defense team after today? >> on tuesday, the police said they'll give the defense access to the crime scene, the movie
7:10am
theater. that's pretty unusual that the defense get access before the owners get the property back. it lets them see the crime scene. it shows you how the authorities are trying to bend over back wards. they're trying to do everything by the book in this case. >> young men sorks often, the first suspects in these mass killings. we're just getting some clues now about james holmes and his background. from what we learned so far, how does he fit the profile of other mass killers? >> that's really it. there is no profile of these killers. it can be women and men. range of ages. i'll tell you something we have seen across the board, that is in most of these cases, these are not what you would call a psychopath or a sociopath. these are people who are not
7:11am
people who have lifelong callous disregard for other people. criminal violations and the like. they are often folks that up until this point have been functioning fairly normally. but went through a series of events, a series of losses, ended up in despair or desperation. >> do we know anything about -- those kinds of losses affect so many of us. most people don't turn into killers. do we know anything about the underlying conditions or psychology? >> that's an plenty point. in so many of these cases in the past, these come out after the attackers have gone through multiple major losses that really overwhelm someone's normal ability to cope. in some cases, there may be other issues, like undiagnosed mental illness. this age group, 24, sometimes major mental illnesses,
7:12am
sometimes involving delusions will develop in this age group, late adolescence or early 20s. >> underlying mental illness doesn't mean that an insanity defense will be successful. >> people look at this and say, there must have been something wrong with this guy. and number two, there's so much evidence against him, you think, what other defense might he have? the insanity defense is really tough. you have to demonstrate you didn't understand what you were doing was wrong. he was claiming to be the joker. the joker is a bad guy who is doing wrong and doing harm. and that, in and of itself, will be a real problem. insanity defenses are really tough. >> okay, thank you very much. now to real-life heroes and so many stories of heroism in the face of horror.
7:13am
david wright has the story. >> reporter: as sure as there was a real-life villain inside that theater, there were real-life heroes, too. >> i don't think this story has been heard. >> reporter: the president mentioned them by name. two friends who sat by the door where the gunman start his attack. >> ally stood up. she was shot in the neck. it punctured a vain. stephanie, 21 years old, had the presence of mind to drop down with her, pull her out of the aisle, apply pressure the entire time while the gunman was still shooting. >> reporter: stephanie never left ally's side. holding her wound with one hand and dialing 911 with the other.
7:14am
>> i just had a conversation with ally downstairs. she's going to be fine. >> reporter: pierce o'farrill and carey rottman survived by splitting up. >> it seems like he was lifeless. i let him go. >> and so he left me. he thought i died. >> reporter: just three weeks ago, pierce performed carey's wedding ceremony. >> the worst part for me was thinking my buddy passed away. >> reporter: both men wounded. taken to separate hospitals. but they survived. >> the lord decided to keep me around. >> reporter: in the movies, the heroes seem to be bullet-proof. real life, not so much. in fact, just across the street from the theater, right over there, they set up the makeshift memorial. 12 simple white crosses, one for each of the dead. robin? >> david, thank you very much. we turn to josh elliott for the other top stoi stories.

7:16am
undisclosed location. penn state's president said the statue is a source of division and an obstacle to healing in the university and beyond. not everyone agrees. >> i'm disappointed at the university. i feel like instead of stepping up and making their own decision, they were pressured. >> reporter: six months ago, before h mourners grooefd their hero. the university's decision comes as the ncaa is about to announce unprecedented measures. penn state is expected to lose several scholarships and be banned from bowl games for more than a year. >> this is about penn state being so blinded about ilts love for football, that even now, it
7:17am
cannot come to grips of punishing itself. >> reporter: clearly, the ncaa believes that the wound here is so deep, major surgery is needed, not just a band aid. >> you'll have the very latest for us when the penalties are announced. thank you, jim avila. a blown tire is being blamed for a crash near san antonio that killed 13 people including three children. they were among 23 crammed into that pickup you see there. it appears they had just crossed the border from mexico. and a violent scene on the streets of anaheim, california. police firing bean bags and person spray to break up a protest over the shooting of an unarmed man on saturday. at one part, a police dog attacked a man. police say the dog accidentally escaped from a patrol car.
